Just checked again - I was looking further out - on the chart it looks like dry land and is marked - "obsruction that covers" - no excuse then!!!

Used to be about powerboats, but it's mainly about R/C models these days . . .

A poker run is NOT a race

Basically, there are 5 checkpoints set up, and if all goes to plan, every boat gets between the different checkpoints as quick as they can (or can afford!) and collects a playing card. And then in the evening theres a party, and the collected cards are used as a hand in a game of poker.. whoever has the highest hand wins a prize. But its not about the money, its about getting loads of boats on the water, and having an excellent day! As far as I know, there has never been a bad poker run!

Poker runs can be a great family day out as well, it's never about who gets there first as you get a sealed envelope with a playing card in it so everyone has a fair chance of winning!

Of course if you do get to the card stop first there might be some bragging rights in the bar later ..................

I'd probably give you a run for your money in acceleration and then watch you head off into the distance, haha

What do you top out at?
